Abstract

The goal of this study is to better understand the impact of the implementation of a compulsory Open and distance learning course on preservice teachers' motivation. Subjects were enrolled in a four-year teacher education program (n = 429) in the province of Quebec (Canada). Our starting hypothesis was that the open and distance learning course put in place would have a positive impact on the motivation of the preservice teachers. The results presented are drawn from both quantitative and qualitative data analysis. They highlight how the open and distance learning context put in place, after initially decreasing student teacher motivation, eventually nurtured preservice teachers' motivation.
